TOKYO -- April 26, 2013

Toshiba Corporation (TOKYO:6502) has launched six next-generation stepping
motor control drivers using the Toshiba BiCD 130nm mixed-signal process
technology, providing excellent Ron per unit area, to achieve highly
integrated, low-power devices with the industry's highest voltage and current
combination, (Parts TB6600HG and TB67H302HG)^1 and compact footprints (Parts
TB67S213FTAG, TB67S215FTAG, TB62261FTAG and TB62262FTAG). These devices are
well suited for a variety of applications such as printers, ATM, robotics,
process control machines, and medical equipment.

Today's printers, ATMs, and process control machines require high speed, high
torque, and high precision for efficient long-term operation. The new Toshiba
stepping motor control drivers satisfy these requirements through exceptional
design, superior performance, and optimum packaging. For high-power
applications, the TB6600HG and TB67H302HG devices combine the highest voltage
and current combination in class and are rated 50V/5.0A^2. They come in a
heatsink mountable HZIP25 package. In addition, the TB6600HG has 1/16
micro-stepping capability that reduces acoustic noise and vibration.

The TB67S213FTAG and TB67S215FTAG devices are rated 40V/2.5A^2 and are housed
in a compact QFN-36 6mm x 6mm package for medium-power applications. They also
reduce power consumption by 50 percent compared to previous generation
devices. The TB62261FTAG and TB62262FTAG devices are rated 40V/1.5A^2 and also
come in a QFN-36 6mm x 6mm package for low-power applications.

All of the above mentioned Toshiba motor control drivers have a mixed-decay
mode, which improves the response characteristics of the motor drive current
by changing the current path, for optimum motor driving. The QFN-36 6mm x 6mm
packaged devices are also about 30 percent smaller than surface mount devices
of similar performance . As such, these motor control drivers can be
integrated in motor control boards to reduce customer design costs.
